Taibbi’s Hate, Inc. finally provided a clear explanation to the ambivalent feelings I had listening to talking heads like Maddow, the ugly tone of Matthews, and sometimes overbearing self-righteousness of Olberman. The messaging of negativity was and continues to be mentally exhausting. And it is quite true that I was no better or more informed as a result of tuning in for the purpose of shaking my head in agreement. Fox was the other side of hell in that regard. The best advice Taibbi offers I embraced long ago: turn them off and start having intellectually honest conversations with the willing that have opposing views. Hate Inc lends hope that an end to media manipulation will be possible with more journalists with the integrity and “cojones” of Taibbi. Good job, man.
